Why in every third or fourth comment does someone mention the Ohilns as a possible culprit?
John has said multiple times the bolt bent with the stock shock. BMW should replace the frame. The End. Was the bolt under torqued, or some other part at fault? Possibly the but the end result is a bent shock mount and it needs replaced.
My F800 just arrived today and it may be the last BMW (#6) I own and at the rate things are going, I'm going to give BMW until next spring (which I shouldn't but I don't want to deal with it right now) to get this bike sorted or its gone and so is my business. My last BMW 05 R1200 had one warranty item otherwise it was great and it was a first year model. The F8 has some teeth cutting problems if you look at the Beasts top threads they aren't screaming go buy an F800GS.
